In addition to allowing international programmers see the works in its original language, thesubtitles also give the opportunity to program those productions abraod I their original language. As a matter of fact, on the initiative of the Etxepare Institute, the Madrid CDN hosted the world premiere of the work in Basque Barealdi Magikoa  last year.
